Woman critically injured, man killed in fatal accident

Young drivers are more expensive to insure as they are more likely to be involved in an accident. Unfortunately, higher insurance rates do not seem to be an effective prevention against a serious or fatal accident. Many Texas families have had to endure the tragic losses that these wrecks cause.

Recently, another terrible crash occurred that resulted in the death of a male driver and left a passenger with critical injuries. Police indicated that the wreck happened late on a Sunday evening along a local road. A 17-year-old girl was operating a smaller sports utility vehicle when she reportedly veered across the road, striking a postal box. She then reportedly wound up in the opposing traffic lane where she collided with another vehicle.

The man who was driving the second car was transported by a medical helicopter to a local hospital, where he later died. The woman who was a passenger in his car required several surgical procedures. She was last reported to be in the critical care unit.

The girl driving the SUV was taken for treatment and later released from a nearby medical facility. Texas officials did not state whether she would face any criminal charges as a result of this fatal accident. However, the victims' families may seek the advice of a personal injury attorney as to whether to pursue civil lawsuits against her, and, because she is a minor, her parents could be named in any lawsuits as well. If negligence can be successfully proven, an award of damages may ease the financial burdens created by the medical costs and final expenses that resulted from this tragic collision.
